The Green Blue
The Green Blue is the environmental awareness initiative developed by the RYA and British Marine Federation (BMF)
The Green Blue aims to provide practical advice and information to help recreational boaters, watersports participants and marine businesses, to think and act in an environmentally conscious way.
The Green Blue has three main components:
- Establishing practical projects to provide solutions to some of the more pressing environmental questions we face
- Conducting sound scientific research to support the work of the RYA and BMF and their members
- Providing sound practical advice
The aim of the project is to work towards promoting a sustainable boating community which subsequently will save money, avoid red tape and safeguard the waters and habitats for the future.
The Green Blue also supports clubs and training centres by helping them understand and comply with the increasing amounts of environmental legislation affecting their operations. The Green Blue website contains a broad spectrum of information including tried and tested reports on environmentally sound products, where you can get them and even some offers for RYA and BMF members.
